When I first taught my kids how to make a strawberry milkshake, they were amazed how easy it is. Now they can do it all by themselves. They key is to use perfectly ripe strawberries (they will give your milkshake the sweetest flavor) and good-quality all-natural ice cream.

If you want to get the kids interested in cooking, this would be a terrific recipe to start with.
